I mean, this is probably the first time I’ve worn makeup in months and months and months. I think self care during the pandemic was really kind of just being around my kids and my husband, cooking, and doing more masks. Because you’re home sitting around, doing masks for your hair, and just kind of back to basics— meditating, walking, that kind of thing.
What’s one beauty rule you swear by?
Honestly, hydration. If you’re drinking a lot of water and have good hydration on the inside, you’re going to look good. But if your skin is really dehydrated and your body is dehydrated it’s not a good thing for beauty.
And one you think is BS?
I just think that everybody needs to follow their own true spirit. Whatever way that beauty manifests for them, I think that’s great.
You’re stranded on a deserted island, what three product do you bring with you?
GOOPGENES All-In-One Nourishing Face Cream, 100%, and our GOOPGENES Nourishing Repair Body Butter that we have coming out on the 27th, which is the best body butter ever. And a good conditioner. This is where I’m the least “clean beauty” person on the planet. I go on Amazon and buy anything that says like, “grow long hair.” Or I get drugstore deep conditioner, I have one from Marc Anthony, the Grow Long, that’s my favorite.
What’s the last Instagram or TikTok rabbit hole you went down?
My daughter was showing me before and after photographs of plastic surgery. I could not stop! I never knew there were all those sites dedicated to it. It’s just like crack, you can’t stop! Everyone is like a cinderella story or something.
You have $20 and free roam of a drugstore, what are you going to buy?
Good conditioner, and probably Weleda Skin Food.
Are there any 90’s beauty trends you hope come back?
Never again.. never! I’m still cringing when I see them from the first time.
What beauty trends are you loving right now?
You know what I love, Beautycounter just released these new lip glosses. Really beautiful, beautiful colors, they go on really well and it’s a super clean formula, I’m really into those.
Who are the women that are inspiring you the most right now?
Definitely my daughter, who is just so badass and so hilarious and so herself. She’s just a total inspiration to me. And then my friends who are daring to do things that they have always wanted to do. Like Cameron Diaz just launched a wine company, and Drew Barrymore just launched a talk show, and is really leaning into her entrepreneurial spirit. I’m really loving women who are being brave and fulling expressing themselves.
